    Hello,

    I am trying to italicize my tagline. I know where the tagline shows up on my Theme Editor, but I don't know how to modify the format in this way.

    Could anyone help?

    Thanks.

    Without a link to your blog, or at least the theme you're using, the answer you will get is generic. Look in the style sheet for something like,

    .description {}

    ...and add,

    font-style: italic;

    A more specific answer will require more specific details from you.

    Here's the link: "69.89.31.215/~winerabb" It's only a temp url because I'm in the midst of upgrading hosts.

    Italicizing "Your “rabbi” in the wine world."?

    On your style.css, in this section

    #masthead h1, #masthead #tagline {
    color:#999999;
    font-family:Verdana,serif;
    font-size:1.4em;
    font-size-adjust:none;
    font-stretch:normal;
    font-style:normal;
    font-variant:normal;
    font-weight:normal;
    line-height:1.42857em;
    padding:0pt;
    text-align:left;
    }

    change font-style:normal; to font-style:italic;

    If this helps, visit my profile sometime.

    Thanks. Here's that same section as it reads in my style.css:

    #masthead h1, #masthead #tagline { font: normal 1.4em/1.42857em Verdana, serif; padding: 0; color: #999; text-align: left; }

    When I tried to change "normal" to "italic", nothing happened. Am I looking in the wrong place, or do additional changes need to be made?

    I'm sorry I gave you a wrong snippet -- I was using a new CSS debugger. I should have said,

    Add a font-style:italic; line to the #masthead h1, #masthead #tagline section.

    Still not quite working.

    Is this what you were intending the edited line to look like? (new text at end)

    #masthead h1, #masthead #tagline { font: normal 1.4em/1.42857em Verdana, serif; padding: 0; color: #999; text-align: left; font-style:italic; }

    69.89.31.215/~winerabb/wp-content/themes/neoclassical/style.css isn't showing the change. Please re-upload, or reedit it in Theme Editor then save.

    Success! It took a couple of re-loads, but it works now. Thanks a million!
